In the USA, we seem to have a ‘republican mood’ and a ‘democratic’ mood. Every 4-8 years it flips, nearly always flipping after 8. Trump’s election wasn’t a surprise nor was our apathy towards Clinton. She wasn’t low-energy – that’s just the negative press getting the narrative in our heads. [very effective mudslinging campaign from both sides].
I just would’ve thought the Republican winner would’ve won by a lot more. It was a paltry win.
